Yesterday, was a nice November day… cool but not cold and partly cloudy. My goal for the day was Washington, NH but I planned stop at Sky Farm on the way there.

Sky Farm, in Deering, NH,  is part of the High Five Reservation of the Forest Society. Among its features is a hill top pasture with a great west-facing view of the Contoocook Valley. This time of year the grand vista is not particularly photogenic in its coat of early winter gray. However, I have been exploring the photographic possibilities of the scattered pasture trees against the sky This view can be had by walking a bit down the hill and looking back more-or-less west. There was a very photogenic sky this trip… deep blue sky and wispy white clouds.

The town common in Washington has three examples of classic New England public buildings… a church, a schoolhouse and a meetinghouse (from left to right in the second photo, below). All in white clapboard and all still in regular use (although the schoolhouse now serves as the police station). I found the architectural details as photographically interesting as the overall view.

  1. Amazing B&W – I particularly thought the cupola and the church steeple were outstanding. Sharp in detail! The church steeple had an almost eerie feel to it.
